Welcome to "La Vimonderie " which is a 2 storey house of 86m². On the ground- floor you will find an openplan living room including a small luxury kitchen, dining - and TV-area, central heating and a modern woodburning stove.
The house has been carefully renovated retaining original features and introducing new and reclaimed timber. Part of the walls on the ground floor show the old granit and Bayeux stones which together with the massive beams impart a cosy atmosphere and remind you that this house has been a cidre and calvados cave since the early 17th Century.
Through the french window you have access to the rock garden and from there to "your" private garden with lily pond, waterfall, sun deck. It's protected from 3 sides, a suntrap
Kids love the tree house in the big nuts tree.
The House is about 800m from the river VIRE
Everbody loves a walk along the river. You may even see salmons jumping on their way upstream to spawn. You can take out a fishing licence for a few days and enjoy the peace and quiet !
Even if there are several parties at the same time, the garden with 4 sitting /sunbathing areas is large enough to give you privacy.
On the other hand, if you wish to join other guests, there is the choice of the main terrace or the conservatory for a chat and a glas of wine together.
Large barbecue-parties have been known to happen in the garden in the spur of the moment which ended only when Orion was dead in the middle of the courtyard; the sky at night here is absolutely unique .
Saint Lô offers a 9 hole Golf Course and an Aquatic Center with an in- and outdoor pool, museums. Also the city together with the tourist office organise various interesting leisure time activities, especially for kids.
The Marais - a bird's paradise - can be reached only in a few minutes. Visitors from far away travel there to see the wild life. You can take part in a boat trip, where the guide will point out birds in their natural habitat, you'd never find on your own !
From Carentan you can take a boat trip through the "wildlife sanctuary". The guide is fantastic so that you will also find hidden places you will never explore on your own.
